So I just got back from purchasing a PS3 and I bought RE5 Gold edition (PS3). Sadly, when I tried to play bro-op the game only spanned a tiny portion of the screen. After doing some research it seems like the problem can be solved by lowering the resolution of the game but whenever I try to do anything in the Video settings, it always pushes me back to 1080p (and then when I start the game, 720). Does anyone happen to know I can change the resolution?
Getting splitscreen to span the full TV
I have both the PS3 and 360 version, had the PS3 version first, but since you could only use one profile on PS3, had to get the 360 version so my brother and I could both get achievements. Anyways, I don't think you can do that. I've tried before. Did you deselect everything other than 480p on the video settings menu and make sure it was saved? Other than that, just don't try, play it as is, it's not that bad. I wish I could give you good advice, but that's not going to happen. I've been in the same spot, but got over it. I read that you can also try deselecting the stuff on the console, but also have to change the setting on your TV, but that's not something I can do, or don't want to even try; sounds dumb.
Thanks, I managed to get it down to 480p but that didn't seem to solve the problem. I'm sure I'll get used to it, probably just frustrated by the strange controls ontop of the small screens. The last RE game I played was 4 on the Gamecube and that was years ago so this is all new to me.
@believer258: That would just make it worse, plus some TV's when using HDMI can't even be configured in that way.
I lowered the resolution on my Xbox and then stretched the screen and it wasn't so bad, and I was using HDMI.
Whatever. I do not see the purpose of including improper split screen. If you're going to split the screen, do it good and proper! (and horizontally, none of this vertical bullshit.)
